    Rct. Shania Schaub, Platoon 4045, November Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, practices swimming 25 meters during swim qualification Oct. 21, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits who need help swimming are given one-on-one training with a swim instructor. Schaub, 18, from Deposit, N.Y., is scheduled to graduate Dec. 19, 2014. Parris Island has been the site of Marine Corps recruit training since Nov. 1, 1915. Today, approximately 20,000 recruits come to Parris Island annually for the chance to become United States Marines by enduring 13 weeks of rigorous, transformative training. Parris Island is home to entry-level enlisted training for 50 percent of males and 100 percent of females in the Marine Corps. (Photo by Cpl. Caitlin Brink)
